Hey Beauty Buddies,
I’ve been rekindling my love affair with some of my staples this weekend, as being on a bit of a makeup spending ban is really encouraging me to use up a few goodies that’s been lying dormant around my makeup drawers. As much as I adore shopping for new cosmetics there comes a time when you realise some of the older stuff you have reeeeeally needs used up before moving onto introducing newbies. So to help me get acquainted with some of my old favourites (including items I haven’t used in what feels like yeeears) I opted to base my look around the Avon’s Duo True Colour Eyeshadow Compact in Pink Ice. Here’s a peek at what pocket friendly items I used to create my summery weekend look….
Max Factor Lasting Performance in 102 Pastelle – £9.99 Boots
L’Oreal Infallible Sculpt Contouring Kit – £9.99 Boots
Makeup Revolution Hot Spice Palette – £6.00 Makeup Revolution Store
Avon Shadow Duo compact in Pink Ice – £6.00 Avon

THE FINAL RESULT:
What do you think gals? Personally I’m swaying towards the tones of the shadow being more lilac than Pink Ice, needless to say it’s actually pretty okay and I’m really glad I didn’t ditch it as intended. In fact if the colour pay off is anything to go by I’d certainly be tempted to have a peek at some of Avon’s other duo shadow compact!
